When you're pregnant or a new mom, it helps to talk to other moms who know what you are going through. Peer counselors are WIC moms trained to help other WIC moms #breastfeed sucessfully. They provide one-on-one support and advice, share experiences, and refer moms to special help from a nutritionist or other health professional.

To be connected to a peer counselor, call 800-942-3678 or visit TexasWIC.org.
